PSG join Manchester United in race for highly-rated Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker

Red Devils completed signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea which could quell interest in Belgium star

PSG have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Leander Dendoncker, according to reports.

The Ligue 1 side – on the brink of landing Neymar from Barcelona in a world-record deal – are monitoring the defensive midfielder’s progress.

Man United reportedly sent scouts to watch Dendoncker in Anderlecht’s 0-0 season opener against Antwerp last weekend.


NOT PICKED YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM YET? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?


But the £40million capture of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea will, one expects, quell their interest in the Belgium international.

Jose Mourinho said former player Matic – who took part in his first United training session today – was a “Jose Mourinho player” and his move had been on the cards for a while.

However, that does not mean that Anderlecht are unwilling to sell £30m-rated Dendoncker, who has also attracted the interest of AC Milan and RB Leipzig.

And club chief Herman van Holsbeek admitted as such when he said of Dendoncker: “We want to cherish him, but if a club is willing to pay between €25m and €35m, we have a problem.

“Against Man United [in the Europa League] he has shown twice that he has the potential to play at a top European club.”

Dendoncker has been at the Belgian outfit since his youth days, making his first-team debut in the 2013-14 campaign.

He established himself as a regular in the 2014-15 season and has gone on to play a pivotal role in Anderlecht’s squad ever since.
